F3. Electricity from renewables – resource assessment and forecasting

The successful implementation of renewables for grid connected electricity requires sophisticated tools to evaluate the potential resource, both contemporaneous with the demand and also to satisfy forecasted demand. In Australia, several time scales are important, sub minute for frequency control, minute to half hourly for the market, up to a few hours for grid management, and longer term for augmentation. Knowledge is also required for single sites and also in a spatial-temporal sense. Papers are invited to satisfy all the needs listed above.
